Ebay/OEM 4Runner GPS/DVD Head Units in Tacos..?

After browsing & searching the audio-section for anyone who's installed/reviewed an aftermarket "factory" GPS H/U from a 4Runner, I found nothing.

I realize the dash on the 4Runner is different, but undoubtably the wiring is the same and cross compatible for steering-wheel controls.

Fitment in an aftermarket dash-kit and "known software issues" is what I'm wondering about. The specific H/U I'm refering to is this one...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/03-09...item41506714e9




The sellers feedback is very good (2 neutrals in 12 months, GPS software was the only issue but seemed to be taken care of by seller). And by all accounts, this H/U would work flawlessly with the steering-wheel controls.

Any input is appreciated, but keep the negative replies civil please...

There are others (in Canada actually, from China) that come with harnesses to plug into factory 4Runner plugs.

Would these be the same as Tacoma ones, or would they be different or have extra plugs only in the 4Runner for the nav units...?

Toyota has used the same stereo harness plugs for the past 20+ years.

Right, but like I said does the 4Runner come with an extra plug on the harness for the Nav unit, that the Tacoma might not have...?

Or (judging from the pic of that harness) should it be totally plug-n-play for a Tacoma as well...?

It has the option for a back-up cam, wonder if it's OEM Toyota compatible..?

From the above picture the 3 white plugs plug into the existing harness. The big plug contains all the wires that power the unit that include the front speakers. The one right below that is for the rear speakers. The third white connector is for the steering wheel controls. All those are the same for every toyota and are the only things that plug in from the way the picture appears.

Is there any updates on this? OP did you end up purchasing/installing this unit? I'm looking for a double DIN dvd/nav unit as well and I'm curious about your results.

Splicing it is not a PITA, I just posted the wiring info on another thread, PM me about it. It's simple, takes about 15 minutes.

I know Scion units work in the non JBL trucks. This would probably work with a double DIN kit.
